Nashville: A Love Letter (part 2)

We packed in so much this past weekend that I decided to post about it in two parts.  Sooo...

After a fun Friday night, we met up with our friend, Flick, at Pinewood Social.  Since Scott's family is in the bar/restaurant business, I wanted him to see this unique venue with all the entertainment it has to offer.  Between the bocce ball court, the pool area and the bowling alley, you almost forget that this place is also a restaurant.  But it is a restaurant, and the food is great!  Scott opted for the fried chicken straight up.  I had the chicken and biscuits, and we shared the fried broccoli (AMAZING)!

After brunch, we hit the Nashville Flea Market.  Held at the fairgrounds, this flea market is said to be one of the top 10 in the country, and after walking around and around and around, I can understand why.  I kept thinking we had seen it all, but the vendors just kept coming.  If you have the patience and the knowledge to for look for diamonds in the rough, it's worth checking out.

By the end of the day, we were pretty worn out so we opted for an old favorite, Park Cafe, for dinner.  Located in Sylvan Park (my old neighborhood), Park Cafe was a regular hang-out when I lived in Nashville.  The food was still delicious, but I was a little disappointed to see how quiet the place was.  Maybe it was just having an off night, but it was not the happening scene it used to be.  Nevertheless, I got to have my beloved Park Cafe Mac & Cheese (it has green chiles, yum), so I was happy!  

Sunday morning we were eager to get back to our babies in Pensacola, but we stopped by Noshville on the way out of town for quick breakfast at this quintessential New York diner done Nashville-style.  It is always hard for me to say to goodbye Nashville, but I know I will be back! It's in my heart.
Again, it was a Bloody Mary Morning, and this one was really good!

This broccoli was so delicious!

    1. I think the fried broccoli was my favorite, but I have a weird obsession with broccoli!

  2. Oh my gosh - broccoli is my favourite veggie and this looks so good! Also I'm always in for bowling, don't know why I love it so much, but it's always so much fun!

    1. I love bowling, too! I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that, but I do even though I'm terrible at it.

  3. Looks like you ate well! I've never been to Nashville but it's definitely a spot on my list :)

    1. There are so many fun, new restaurants in Nashville! I could spend forever there and never get bored with a culinary tour. You should definitely go!
